You know that oatmeal is nutritious, but did you know that it could be luscious, too? Build a righteous breakfast by cooking oats with any of the following from Organic Valley: French Vanilla Half & Half; French Vanilla Non-Dairy Soy Creamer; Hazelnut Half & Half; Original Non-Dairy Soy Creamer; or regular Half & Half. Add dried fruit (raisins, dried cherries, dried pears, dried peaches, etc.) as it simmers, then top off each bowl with yogurt, maple syrup and your favorite type of toasted nuts. Oatmeal never had it so good. 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup quick-cooking oatmeal (do not use instant)
  • 1 cup water
  • 23 cup Organic Valley Half & Half or Soy Creamer
  • 14 cup dried fruit (cut into pieces if necessary)
  • pinch of salt
  • 12 cup Organic Valley Yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons nuts, toasted in a 375-degree oven 5 to7 minutes

Directions

1. Combine oatmeal, water, half & half (or soy creamer), and dried fruit in a heavy saucepan. Bring to simmer over medium-high flame. Reduce heat to medium-low, give the mixture a stir, cover it and let it cook until the liquid is absorbed, 4-5 minutes. Turn off heat and let oatmeal stand for 1-2 minutes longer.

 2. Serve oatmeal topped with yogurt, maple syrup and toasted nuts.

For a lighter recipe, try using soy milk - still very creamy and delicious without all the fat. Even better, add some apple sauce or grated pear to the pot while cooking, instead of maple syrup at the end...

I just had to write to tell you that I tried this recipe, and now I'm addicted. I like oatmeal, usually plain, but the combination is great for both taste and additional nutrition. For dried fruit, I use dried cranberries, and I skip the maple syrup but the yogurt makes for a great combination. Thanks!
